I recently (today) obtained this 1959 R60 with a Steib (sp) sidecar and I want to
restore it. I do not know how far I can or want to take this restoration. The bike has been in my wife's family for many years and I have always wanted to do something with it. It has set in my mom-in-law's garage for about 20 years being ridden maybe once or twice a year...some years less than that. I have ridden the bike several times and can only tell you this: it is a real bit&* to get started and has developed a severe tendancy to go into semi violent "tank slapper" mode even at low speed when a small pot hole or sewer cover is hit. With this little bit of information can anyone give me any advice? #1 What do I need to do to get the "tank slapper" thing under control? #2 Where should I begin this project?
